    Had a chance to try Sikaran for myself yesterday. All I can say is....WOW, what a wonderful and devastating art!

    I visited the school that Sheldon and Charlie Bedell have in Athol, MA. What a FANTASTIC time. Sheldon and Charlie got to show me a bit more about how their strikes and blocks work. I don't know if I showed them much other than how a clumsy Silat stylist does footwork...LOL!

    We touched upon quite a bit...sticks, blade, empty hands, experimenting with different angles of attack, targeting certain zones of the body, sweeps, takedowns. Sheldon started to show me a form, which is about where my brain just shut down. I think my body was about ready to do the same...it was one helluva workout.

    There is so much of their system that we didn't get to, such as the good amount of ground work that Charlie has added.

    I just may have to go back for more [​IMG]

    That's great! Charlie Bedell showed us some Sikaran in Buffalo and it gave me a much fuller appreciation of the art.

    That was an excellent presentation. It was a very interesting change. At some point I would love to work with them more on my kicking which is not very good. Sheldon picked up on my limp rather quickly but gosh...so muich material, so little time. We didn't really go that far in to what I could do to strengthen my kicks. They are very skilled and patient instructors...it was a wonderful experience.

    You are going to have a very broad background in the FMAs!
